Prayer is not magical yet it is unexplainable, except by believing in God Almighty and the power we have through Him to intercede, or be an advocate, for others. At times I have said to others, I wish I could do more for you, during their struggle or grieving time. Many will respond by acknowledging the importance of those prayers and express their heartfelt thanks for remembering them. God can even transcend time if you are “late” in praying for something. Maybe the surgery already took place or event happened, and you did not pray until afterward; it is still fine to pray and God will still hear this prayer. We can take comfort in this and in the multiplication of our prayers as it comes into the presence of God. Sometimes we feel as though our prayers are hitting the ceiling and are pointless, but as we persevere we see the impact that can still occur. The main thing is to keep praying! Yes, pray for yourself, but increase time spent praying for your family, friends, coworkers, schoolmates, team associates, church staff, missionaries, non-profit ministries and more. Not only will you be asking God to bless them, you will be blessed by being a part of their lives and ministry going forward.
